August 1-3, 2008


This year our team grows by one! Mike Quincy, another of our college clan, is joining us for this year’s ride. Mike and Carl did the 1998 Boston-NY AIDS ride, and inspired David to ride the PMC with Carl. The rest is history.


With the support of our generous donors, over the past eight years we’ve raised over $300,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund. This year we’ll be riding the scheduled Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, but ask that you’ll honor us with a gift to support cancer research and care.


Dana-Farber has repeatedly been ranked in the top 5 by US News and World Report for cancer care, and is four-star ranked by Charity Navigator for its efficiency with your contributions. In 2007, the PMC was ‘perfect,’ using none of your gifts to cover administrative costs.


Prior Years’ rides:

-  2007: Carl rode from the NY line. David joined him in Sturbridge for the formal PMC.

-  2006: Transcontinental. Almost $170,000 raised. 3,600 miles over 38 riding days during one of the hottest summers in recorded history.

-  2005: we rode a bit more than the official PMC route, clocking 215 miles and adding CT to our list of states ridden.

-  2004: in celebration of the historic 25th annual PMC, we rode from David’s then-hometown of Cincinnati to join the PMC - a total of 1,054 miles over 11 days! (And no, you don’t want to know about the saddle sores)

-  2003, 2002: we rode about 300 miles by adding an extra day and 100 miles, starting from the MA/NY state line.

-  2001, 2000: we rode the official PMC route, 192 miles from Sturbridge MA to Provincetown MA over two days.
